Good evening, everyone.
FOOD BANK DONATION on Sunday 9th September2018 :
Thank you to all who donated items for last week's Food Bank Appeal. A total of 46.7 kg (102.9 lbs) of goods were donated. The next donation date will be Sunday 7th October, and it will form part of the Harvest Thanksgiving Service.
This is the e-mail sent from our Food bank buddy Anne:-
Good evening everyone. After a few days of no internet access, I am so pleased to be back on
This is a copy of our latest letter from our Foodbank Buddy Anne:-
Good afternoon everyone,
Still a lot of heat but also the blessing of some showers to cool us down. The gardens are loving the rain and it is so needed. We were unexpectedly busy yesterday with quite a few last-minute referrals. We ended up giving away twice as much food as we received! It goes to show just how important your donations are.
Our cafe area was buzzing with friends old and new. It is encouraging to see how our existing friends make new friends welcome and embrace them into the fellowship.
WE REQUIRE DONATIONS OF BISCUITS, SUGAR, JAM, TOILET ROLLS, CURRY SAUCE, SHAMPOO AND TINNED VEGETABLES.
WE DO NOT REQUIRE DONATIONS OF NAPPIES, BABY FOOD, PET FOOD, SOAP, SOUP, CEREAL NOR BEANS.
Thank you so much for your continued support. It is so much appreciated.
God bless you all, Anne

This Sunday on 13th May 2018 is our “Foodbank Sunday” and the latest “Foodbank Buddy e-mail” suggests the following preferred items for donations: -

We thank you sincerely to providing us with the very things we need each week.”
(Please do not panic if what you have bought for donating is not included in the foregoing red highlighted section since your donations will probably be needed in the coming week’s requirements, and this is Anne and Margaret’s way of trying to prevent certain items becoming over-stocked. Thank you all for your donations and giving your support to some less-fortunate members within our local community.)
